A few months back on a post called “Post Your Best New gTLD Domain Name“, that has over 300 comments, a reader claimed that he had an offer for his domain name Trade.Domains for $80,000 that he declined because he thought his domain was worth a lot more.
The Flippa auction that features Trade.Domains and 20 others ends in less than an hour. The highest bid so far is $125 and the reserve has not been met. There are some decent domain in there but I don’t think that the sellers expectations will be met: “so this small portfolio of 20 domains may have a value between $200K & $1 million USD if domains are sold separately to end-users.”
Here are a few of his comments on my post from March:
“Trade.domains is not for domainers. Is for an end user and worth as low $1,000,000”
“This is a name for big companies not for everybody! for $185K you can get your own extension but NOT “Trade.domains””
“I dont need f****g $80,000 because I sell 50-60 domain names per year, some of them in 5 figures so I just need to jump to 6 & 7 figures OK ???”
“I just received 2 bid´s at SEDO.com from somebody from INDIA (first bid $25,000 & second bid $80,000) but I declined both becuse I thing the domain has huge potential so I expect higher offers.”
If the Flippa auction reserve is set where I think it is set then I don’t expect these 20 domains to sell today. Don’t get me wrong but I don’t think that Trade.Domains is worth $80,000 and I just believe that the Sedo bid from India was bogus. It is also worth more than $125 especially with the 20 other domains bundled.
